The problem can occur on any Google Home device such as Google Home Mini, Nest, etc. For convenience, we use the term Google Home in this article. But what could be the reason why Google Home increased the volume? Is there a ghost in your house? I am not sure about that, but I know it is not responsible for changing your Google Home volume.

Indeed, there are many other reasons for the volume problem on Google Home. Let's see them with the reasons for correcting them.

1. Restart Google Home

As with any other electronic gadget, you must start by restarting your Google Home speaker. To do this, unplug the speaker, then plug it back in after 15-20 seconds.

Restart the device "width =" 625 "height =" 336 "data-sizes =" auto "sizes =" (min-width: 976px) 700px, (min-width: 448px) 75vw, 90vw "srcset =" https: // cdn.guidingtech.com/imager/assets/2020/01/548050/restart-device_4d470f76dc99e18ad75087b1b8410ea9.jpg?1579411852 625w, https://cdn.guidingtech.com/imager/assets/2020/01/548050/restart -device_40? 1579411852 500w, https://i1.wp.com/cdn.guidingtech.com/imager/assets/2020/01/548050/restart-device_7c4a12eb7455b3a1ce1ef1cadcf29289.jpg?w=900&ssl=1 340w

2. Clean your device

Since Google smart speakers such as the larger Google Home and the smaller Home Mini offer touch controls to change the volume, try cleaning your device. Sometimes there might be dust on the capacitive sensor for volume control, and it could interfere.

So take a cloth and lightly brush the entire device. Then flip your Google Home device over and shake it to remove dust.

3. Change position

It may sound odd to you, but some Google Home users have reported that changing the location of the smart speaker solved the problem for them.

4. Prevent others from controlling your speaker

Google devices such as Google Home and Chromecast can be controlled by other people on the same Wi-Fi network. They will see a notification on their phone that a device is streaming with the ability to change the volume or play / pause the broadcast.

If the feature is on, someone may accidentally or deliberately change the volume on their phone to be bored. Fortunately, you can deactivate the function.

To do this, launch the Google Home app and access your speaker. Tap the settings icon. Then uncheck the toggle next to Let others control your broadcast media.

5. Decrease the Bluetooth volume

When you use Google Home as a Bluetooth speaker, the volume can be changed from the connected devices and it will remain the same after you log out.

This means that if you use Google Home as a Bluetooth speaker for your laptop and you change the volume to 90 on your computer. Then when you disconnect the Bluetooth connection, Google Home will have the same volume (90). So if you are using it as a Bluetooth speaker, this could be one of the reasons for the volume issues.

6. Remove Bluetooth device

Sometimes the paired Bluetooth device may also be responsible for unpredictable volume changes in Google Home. We are not asking you to stop using your smart speaker as a Bluetooth speaker, but you should forget about all connected Bluetooth devices and then reconnect them.

To do this, follow these steps:

Step 1: Open the Google Home app on your phone and tap your Google Home speaker.

Step 4: Restart your Google Home, then pair the devices again.

7. Set a different alarm volume

If your Google Home speaker only increases the volume for alarms and timers, it is because there is a separate setting to control their volume. The setting is independent of your normal Google Home volume.

Then tap Alarms and Timers. Adjust the volume as desired. Go back to save the changes.

Note: As mentioned earlier, this is a separate volume which does not affect the volume of how Google Home interacts with you. Changing the volume by touch controls does not change the volume of the alarm.

8. Check the night mode

Google Home devices come with a nice feature that automatically reduces the volume to the set position. The function is called night mode. As the name suggests, it is useful at night when you don't want to disturb others.

Since night mode changes the volume, you should take a look at this setting and see if it is turned on. And if that's the case, whether its customizations match your needs or not.

To do this, launch the Google Home app, go to your Home device and tap the settings icon.

Press the night mode. Then deactivate the night mode if you do not want to use it or change the volume under Maximum volume at night.

Note: Once the night mode calendar is complete, the previous volume from Google Home will come into play.

9. Check the volume under the routines

Another cool feature that could be the reason for the volume change problem is the Google Assistant routines. It is a single command that performs several tasks, including changing the media volume. So check the routines of the Google Assistant and see if a routine you use changes the volume of Google Home.

Point: In the United States, routines can also be planned. So check this also under routine settings.

Let's update the applications

We hope the above solutions would have prevented the Google Home speaker from automatically changing the volume. If this continues, update the Google Home app on your phone. And if the problem only occurs when you listen to music through third-party apps such as Spotify, also update those apps. Sometimes it's a bug in the apps, and updating them would fix the problem.
